Rodeo Houston breaks all-time paid attendance record with Cardi B concert, beating Garth Brooks but NOT George Strait.... technically. Joel Cowley on the supposed Cardi b HLSR attendance record, the president and CEO of the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, explains both performers (cardi and garth) hold records in two separate categories.
Joel Cowley, the president and CEO of the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, explains both performers hold records in two separate categories.
“Cardi B’s performance is the record paid rodeo attendance, meaning there was a rodeo held that day. George Strait holds the all-time NRG stadium attendance record, because we pulled out the entire rodeo arena and put over 7,000 seats on the floor. We were able to sell 80,020 tickets,” he said. George will be there again March 17th to settle the argument again once and for all.
A mother says a dispute over seats at Cardi B's record-setting RodeoHouston concert ended in a brawl that was caught on camera. Video shows four women fighting inside NRG Stadium Friday after two of those women were told the seats belonged to a 16-year-old girl and her sister. The girls' mother said the two women followed them and began pushing them. The two women were arrested, according to RodeoHouston officials.
